Tracks 1-6 are from the first demo tape Scapegoat 666, tracks 7-12 are from the second demo tape Descent of the Diabolos and tracks 13-17 are unreleased songs that were generally played by Hirosuke's previous band, Astrozombies. The two versions of The Complete Legacy Book, labeled as "Scapegoat" and "Diabolos", each contain a re-recording of the original demo tape associated with the version of the book, and these recordings appear on The Birth of Evil remastered. The remaining tracks are entirely new to this album.The Birth of Evil is billed as the "Early Balzac Songs 1992-1994 Compilation" on the back cover.
